When installing mysql5 +server or apache2, you were shown a message  
that told you how to start these daemons. To start apache2 now and at  
system startup:

sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.apache2.plist

To stop apache2 now and not start it at system startup:

sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/ 

For mysql5 +server:

sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.mysql5.plist


sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/ 

If you only installed mysql5, and not mysql5 +server, you'll have to  
uninstall mysql5 and install mysql5 +server:

sudo port -f uninstall mysql5
sudo port clean --work mysql5
sudo port install mysql5 +server
